The Commonwealth Games 2022 is all set to commence from 28th July. India, having sent a strong contingent looks hopeful for a good showing in this edition’s Commonwealth Games.
Although the Indian contingent is strong, there are some athletes who did not get a chance to join others for the CWG 2022 and will be sorely missed.
Let’s look at the top five Indian athletes who will miss the CWG 2022.
Saina Nehwal (Badminton)
Saina Nehwal is one of the biggest names in Badminton. She has won Gold in the Commonwealth on not just one but two occasions. Naturally, her inclusion in the Indian team would have given a huge boost to the country’s hopes but a difference in ideology between Nehwal and the Badminton Association became a huge roadblock.
Nehwal not agreeing to go through trials while Badminton Association insisted on it meant that the ace shuttler had to give the CWG 2022 a miss.
